Going to the Pictures (VIII)

Nearly time for me to head off on a well-deserved holiday, but before that, there’s the pictures. As with all my movie reviews, let’s dive straight in:

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Unlimited screening, 2nd January 2018)

Great cast, charming, wickedly funny and a polarising story - this was a surprise hit for me. I hadn’t even seen the trailer before I booked tickets; with names like Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson, I didn’t really need to. A very black comedy theme runs through this, an otherwise deadly serious tale about those left behind when family members are lost. Pointing out just how parochial some rural places can still be in America, while at the same time showing how normal, decent people can be better than you ever thought, it’s barely 2 hours of giggles and surprised gasps. The cast was amazing, with no characters wasted.

Verdict: 9/10; watch this at your local when you can.
